✨What is one thing you LOVE about your body? ✨ …………………………………………… Last Friday I spent my day training @neda to become a Body Project Facilitator and I’m still riding the high of talking all day with like-minded, driven women! 🙌🏼If you’ve never heard of it … the Body Project is a body acceptance intervention that has repeatedly proven to be effective at reducing body dissatisfaction, negative mood, unhealthy dieting, and disordered eating. ✨Sounds amazing, right? Well, it is amazing!! ✨ One of the exercises we did was to share things we love about our bodies (physical, emotional, etc). So I want to know from YOU, what do you LOVE about your body? Tell me below 👇🏼in words or emojis & bonus love if you share something physical 😘. I’ll start: I LOVE my strong legs 💪🏼 #bodyproject #neda #bodypositive #bodyacceptance #bodyimage #positivebodyimage #eatingdisorders #disorderedeating #eatingdisorderprevention #bodylove #healthateverysize #intuitiveeating #mindfulmovement #joyfulmovement #bostonwellness #wellbeing #strongwomen #barreinstructor #haespersonaltrainer #aerie #aeriereal

When exercise is performed as an act of self-care & self-love, it becomes so easy to WANT to do it, as opposed to feeling like a chore. - I have been loving moving lately. Hitting the weights, walking, dancing, hiking, even running! (Which I used to hate with a passion 😂) But I do it because it feels good & because I am focusing on how it makes me FEEL rather than how it will make me LOOK. - This small perspective shift has helped me fall in love with exercising again after feeling so burnt out for a while. - If you're struggling, start small. Do things you genuinely enjoy & don't force yourself or be too hard on yourself! I know with fitness it's more common to hear "go hard or go home" or "no rest days" & blah blah blah but then exercise can become unenjoyable & ain't nobody want that 🤷🏻‍♀️ - I hope you broke a nice sweat today, I definitely did 💦 If not, then no biggie, just try again tomorrow 😊👊🏼 - #Recovery #EDRecovery #ED #EatingDisorders #DisorderedEating #IntuitiveEating #AntiDieting #BoPo #Health #Fitness #IntuitiveExercise #JoyfulMovement #MeantToMove #HealingThruMovement #CPT #MyJourney #JourneyNotADestination

Gas spills are gross. So is the hand sanitizer at the pump. Toxic on top of toxic. Cut out the nasty with Purification oil. Don’t have that? Lemon oil, Thieves hand sanitizer or Thieves spray will work too!! Lemon essential oil cuts through petrochemicals. All clean, no stink, no nasty gas smell, no nasty chemicals!! Hope this makes your next trip to the gas station a little more enjoyable.

When we’re at war with our bodies we rarely stop to appreciate how our bodies show up for us and how magnificent they are! . Today I have noticed my body showing up for me by... . ✨letting me know when it was time to eat by sending me hunger signals and letting me know when I was satisfied . ✨making sure I knew when I got up this morning that I stayed up too late last night and probably should consider going to bed earlier tonight. Thanks for the feedback, body! . ✨telling me what felt good and what was too much when I did some joyful movement this morning . ✨keeping me in a safe container while I sit with clients through struggles and celebrations . It seems as though we are in constant communication! Thanks, body. . How is your body showing up for you today? Perhaps you can take a moment to thank it for all its hard work. 🙏🏼 . 🖤 KDS . #edrecovery #recovery #intuitiveeating #healthateverysize #haes #thebodyisnotanapology #bopo #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopowarrior #ditchthediet #dietdropout #antidiet #effyourbeautystandards #allbodiesaregoodbodies #healing #selfcompassion #riotsnotdiets #bodyimage #losehatenotweight #bodyacceptance #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthwarrior #mindfulness #mindfulliving #mindfulness #joyfulmovement

Lets talk about joyful movement 🙌🏼 . Some of you who have been following me for years now (shoutout to my Day 1s) know that I used to work out A L O T. Like 15-20 miles of running/week, one rest day, even working out with a busted knee because I couldn’t fathom the idea of skipping a workout 😳 I would also exercise excessively after weekends of binge eating. It was a really unhealthy cycle, and I legitimately thought, “I have to run this much in order to be/stay in shape” (cue diet culture). Huh? I have to make myself do something that makes me miserable? Why?! Says who? It was so backwards. 🤦🏼‍♀️ . These days my exercise life looks pretty different. I don’t exercise as punishment, ever. I no longer dread working out. It’s something that I enjoy doing, and I do for the way it makes me f e e l. Not for the way it makes me look or because I feel like I have to. Some days I don’t exercise at all because I don’t feel like it. Other days I go on long walks. Other days I do intense HIIT because it feels awesome!! It’s all just based on what I’m feeling that day. . Healing my relationship with exercise has been freeing and amazing. 💛 I no longer feel guilty if I don’t exercise on any given day- I know that if my body wants to move, it will tell me! 💪🏼 . . . . #healthymind #overallhealth #intuitiveeating #intuitiveliving #HAES #overallhealth #nodiet #foodfreedom #foodfreedomforever #antidiet #antidietproject #nourishnotpunish #balancednotclean #lifebeyonddieting #nutrition #joyfulmovement #morethanabody

i used to think it didn't count unless you... ran for at least 30 minutes. lifted heavy weights. practiced intense yoga. walked for at least an hour. hit the gym at least 3x a week. worked up a sweat. burned at least X calories. ✧ when you only associate exercise with losing weight, you miss out. maybe you've only got a few minutes to stretch before your next meeting or want to go on a nice bike ride on the weekend or feel like dancing it out to a song or two but you don't. why bother if it's not going to be a "real" workout? ✧ move your body because you want to take care or it, not change it. the more i challenge my all-or-nothing thinking, the more i exercise and the better i feel. truth. i want my 90 year old self to thank me for the strong heart and bones!

“M” starts Twelve Weeks Stronger today and besides for being super excited for her, I’m really happy with the workout schedule she chose. ⁣ ⁣ Here’s what it looks like:⁣ Sunday - 8:30-9:30pm - Strength Training⁣ Tuesday - 6:15-6:45am - Couch to 5K⁣ Thursday - 6:15-6:45am - Strength Training⁣ ⁣ I know what you’re thinking... ⁣ Why three times a week? Why only 30 minutes each? Why is one of them an app program?⁣ ⁣ Great questions. I’ll give you a great answer. ⁣ ⁣ Because the most idealistic schedule is one that’s realistic - and this is what’s doable for M. ⁣ ⁣ These days, these times, an app program that she’s already started, plus some new exercises - yes, with a kettlebell!⁣ ⁣ Are you self-sabotaging your workout experience? Are you trying to fit in exercise 5 days a week? For an hour each time? Always choosing the most intense option?⁣ ⁣ And then wondering why you feel like you keep failing? ⁣ ⁣ It’s time to ask yourself: Is your Joyful Movement program realistic?⁣ ⁣ Sometimes having a personal cheerleader, accountability buddy and custom workout plan based on YOUR goals and needs is all you need to take your exercise routine from “so not happening 😬” to “I can crush this 😁!”⁣ ⁣ I’m here if you’re ready to invest in yourself and your health with Twelve Weeks Stronger. Just shoot me a PM and we’ll make the magic happen!

β-Caryophyllene is a terpene found in many different edible plants. Spices like black pepper, cloves, and cinnamon, as well as herbs like oregano, basil, hops, and rosemary, are known to exhibit high concentrations of caryophyllene. Due to its affinity to the peripheral CB2 receptors, caryophyllene often appears in anti-inflammatory topicals and salves. While pot contains about 35%, Copaiba contains 55% β-Caryophyllene. No THC. It won’t make you high, so relax and soothe what ails you!

Good morning, #fitfam! I was reading the fitness section of @bodyposipanda’s book Body Positive Power last night and I wanted to share a quote with you that I really love. As both an ED survivor and a runner, I’m still trying to find that happy, healthy place within the fitness world. Can you be both body positive AND a fitness fanatic? Yes, you can! It’s all about motivation. I #run and #workout because it makes me happy, and because it is the best medicine I’ve ever found for my anxiety and insomnia. Megan asks us to reject the fitspo culture though, and that’s something I have a different take on... I deserve to be in that space as much as anyone else and I will take it back for myself. My body and abilities inspire me, and that’s MY #fitspo. 💙

As soon as I stopped exercising for weight loss was when I truly fell in love with moving my body. : : The health at every size approach has significantly changed the way I view eating and exercise (I highly recommend you look into it!). : : Whether it was running, the gym, yoga, I'd be at it hard for hours a day, trapped in a vicious cycle of punishing myself for not being "thin" enough or for having eaten a piece of bread. Not fun! : : Fast forward to now it's less about the "outside" and more about how I feel. What kind of energy do I have on a particular day, what joints need more love, or what movement practice will bring me joy. : : I write about joyful movement and the health at every size approach in my FREE Body Image Guide (link above in profile 👆🏼). My goal is to help people find bodily acceptance through education, yoga/movement and Mindfulness! : : Are you ready to start moving for joy and not for punishment for what you eaten?

Last week was an epic week of movement! With lots of walking (makes for a very happy doggo) and a few actual workouts. Unfortunately this week I’ve come down with a little cold and have had zero energy so I’ve been avoiding workouts and just been walking. I did manage to go for a little bit of a run yesterday tho, I thought I was feeling better but apparently not 😑 my foot has felt fantastic all week, it’s been fine for walking and balancing etc, so going for a run seemed like a good idea! And it was, pain free during my running intervals and my walking breaks, and pain free on the walk home, and pain free today! Had another physio appointment today and things are looking good! I’ve been told to push the boundaries a bit and run more to see if any pain comes back up so we know if we’re on the right track or not, and my appointments are now being pushed out to fortnightly rather than weekly. So I’m feeling like all that is a good sign and that maybe we’re actually getting this issue sorted and I’ll be back to running regularly again with no more setbacks! #running #runner #runnerslife #injuredrunner #run #runningwomen #runningoutofmymind #movement #joyfulmovement #runninggirl #fit #fitness #move

Evening walk around the neighborhood enjoying the sunset = JOYFUL MOVEMENT 🎉 (& some thoughts on being counterculture) - Sometimes there’s days that you ignore your hunger cues, eat too much, and you are left feeling full, bloated, and uncomfortable... & that’s okay! Before intuitive eating, I would’ve looked down at my food baby and either a) not eaten another bite until my no-carb breakfast the next morning, or b) thrown in the towel and stuffed my belly even more with food and felt worse. However, intuitive eating reminds me to respect my body, feel my fullness, and in this case I chose joyful movement. - I didn’t go for a walk because I felt guilty about all I had eaten. I didn’t power walk to try and burn off the calories. Instead, I acknowledged my slightly uncomfortable fullness level and chose ~joyful movement~ since I knew that it would make my body feel good (which it did!). After my walk, would you believe I’m slightly hungry?! And even crazier... Would you believe I may have a little snack before bed?! 3 cheers for self-care! 🙌🏼 - Intuitive eating may be countercultural towards the “norms” of diet culture, but let’s embrace it! Jesus is the ultimate model of countercultural as he gave his perfect life on the cross to save a sinful people. (Talk about the Father’s grace!) As we walk in the light of Christ, let us follow Ephesians 4:24 “And put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” through love, service, and generosity to those around us, seeking to glorify God. - #intuitiveeating #mindbodysoul #healthyheart #countercultural #joyfulmovement #ephesians #bodylove #selflove #selfcare #bodyimage #bodypositive #bodypositivity #summernights #sunset #revelationwellness #jesus #encouragement #bibleverse #moveyourbody

Every session is a play date when @mchughesphoto comes to the studio! 😀 His body loves primal motions such as crawling, spinning, lunging, and hanging. So we take all the movements that make his CNS happy and challenge them in various ways: with varied loads, changing relationships to gravity, working with vision, adding neural tasking. 🧠😀 This week he’s preparing for hiking in the wilderness of Colorado. This just might be practice for a descent down a steep incline toward a babbling brook?! 🦀🧗‍♀️🏕 🌀 #play #playful #movement #movementismedicine #playisexercise #crawling #climbing #spinning #lunging #naturalmovement #hanging #loads #neuralload #stacking #neuropro #gyrotonic #zhealth #happy #happymovement #joyfulmovement #movewell #movebetter #brain #cns #kinesphere #kinespherecenter

Weight loss should NEVER be a treatment for an eating disorder, irrespective of the size of a person’s body. You cannot support somebody to heal the relationship they have with food, movement and their body, whilst simultaneously supporting them to try to shrink their body. . . Weight loss should NEVER be encouraged for ANY person with a current eating disorder, or a history of an eating disorder. . . #healthateverysize #haes #nondiet #ditchthediet #fuckdietculture #bodypositivity #bopo #thereisnowrongwaytohaveabody #allbodiesareworthybodies #theembodiedjourney #bodykindness #bodyrespect #bodytrust #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #selfcompassion #joyfulmovement #intuitiveeating #mindfuleating #riotsnotdiets #losehatenotweight #weightstigma #fightfatphobia #fatactivism #socialjustice #antidietrevolution

Feeling pain is not a choice, but what we do with our scars is. Everyone feels pain differently. It doesn’t make sense to show it through before and after photos, numbers, and intense details. When sharing your message, choose not to glorify pain and illness, but rather to empower other human beings. Be the person you needed when you were younger.

iamglitterandgrit

Women are taught to put the feelings and needs of others before their own. So it's not surprising to me that we concern ourselves with the comfort of others when we're trying to make choices for ourselves. ••• A simple example of this is when I haven't shaved in awhile and I have a pedicure appointment. I always worry that the nail tech will be uncomfortable or grossed out. Obviously there are some strong societal norms backing those feelings, but at the end of the day, by making the inconvenient or unwanted choice to shave, I'm trying to manage someone else's *potential* feelings of discomfort. ••• This comes up for my clients in many ways. Maybe instead of wearing the crop top a client prefers, she wears something loose with sleeves so that others won't feel discomfort at seeing her body. Or if a client's friends are ordering salads, she may feel like she has to order a salad, too, so she can fit in with her friends and not feel judgment for her food selection. In trying to navigate the perceived discomfort of others, we often end up making choices that don't feel true to what we want. ••• But other people's feelings of discomfort are not our business. Our responsibility is to make choices that feel right for us as individuals. Which isn't to say you should completely disregard the feelings of others, but most of us could use better boundaries in this area, especially when it comes to strangers we don't know. If someone should express their discomfort to you about a choice you made, remember that their feelings are likely actually about THEM, not you, and it's their job to manage their own feelings. ••• Besides, it would be impossible (not to mention incredibly time and energy consuming) to make sure that everyone else around you feels comfortable with all of your choices. It's important that you let people deal with their own issues so you can live your life in alignment with what feels best for you. ••• Do you find yourself worrying about the discomfort of others? Tell me about it in the comments or in my DMs.

So here’s what I don’t get. Yup, another one. ⁣ ⁣ Why are we constantly putting the needs of others before our own?⁣ ⁣ I mean, I get it. We’re all super busy. ⁣ But remember that song you first learned back in nursery?⁣ ⁣ 🎵 “V’ahavta l’reacha kamocha...” 🎶⁣ ⁣ Have you ever thought about why it says ‘kamocha,’ like yourself?⁣ ⁣ I mean, why not just say and you should love your friend? Why ‘and you should love your friend like yourself?’⁣ ⁣ The short answer:⁣ ⁣ Because in order to love others you need to love yourself first. ⁣ ⁣ And that means taking care of yourself and treating yourself so that you can be your best self. ⁣ ⁣ Yeah, I know, self-care and self-love are the hot terms these days. But, you know what?⁣ ⁣ They’re important!⁣ ⁣ For so many of us, Joyful Movement is self-care. So why does it somehow fall way low on our list of priorities?⁣ ⁣ When your son has a dentist appointment, or your friend gets engaged and is planning a vort, or you need to see the ENT, you book an appointment and put it in your planner. ⁣ ⁣ I don’t care if your an iCal kinda gal or if you use a real live @shaatraclub or @the_happy_planner. ⁣ ⁣ Either way, it goes in there. It’s a non-negotiable. ⁣ ⁣ Well, guess what? ⁣ ⁣ Your exercise, your “me time” should be too. I don’t tell you to put your workout time in your planner because I think you need more items in there to fill it up. ⁣ ⁣ I tell you to do it because you’re worth it. ⁣ ⁣ We all know that if you wait to find the time to exercise, it just won’t happen. Let’s be real. ⁣ ⁣ But if you schedule it in, the time’s already been found. ⁣ ⁣ My “Twelve Weeks Stronger” clients pay me to be their personal cheerleader and accountability buddy; to customize a workout program according to their goals and availability; to help them with body image and Intuitive Eating. ⁣ ⁣ And you know what the first task they’re given when their program begins? To put their workouts in their planner. Because that is key to making it happen. ⁣ ⁣ So... are you an electric or paper planner? ⁣ And will you start putting your workouts in there?

Hi Everyone! . . With so many more of you joining and following The Embodied Journey Instagram Community, I wanted to pop on over and introduce myself again. It’s often nice to be able to put a face to the name. . . So, I’m Nicole. I’m a Social Worker, Counsellor and Eating Disorder Recovery Coach from Sydney, Australia. I practice from a Health at Every Size paradigm and I’m a #proudhaesprovider. I identify as a fat woman (I’ve reclaimed the word fat as a benign descriptor for my body, rather than a word that is fraught with insults and feelings of being worthless & less than) and I live unapologetically in a fat body. I am a fat activist and aim to raise the voices of others who are living in marginalised bodies. I also live with Fibromyalgia, a chronic illness that has no cure. I have a lived experience of an eating disorder, and am a speaker and advocate in this field. My lived experience informs my professional practice, as well as providing a platform to continue to fight for representation of ALL bodies across the eating disorder recovery sphere. My account is a mix of education, activism, advocacy, lived experience and let’s face it, I love a good rant! You’ll find all things HAES, Non-Diet, ED Recovery, Fat Activism, rants about Weight Stigma & lots about the importance of self compassion & self care. . . The Embodied Journey continues to grow & continues to reach people. If you’re loving what you’re seeing here, please keep on liking & commenting! Thank you for your support thus far & I look forward to what lies ahead. . . #healthateverysize #haes #nondiet #ditchthediet #fuckdietculture #bodypositivity #bopo #thereisnowrongwaytohaveabody #allbodiesareworthybodies #theembodiedjourney #bodykindness #bodyrespect #bodytrust #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #selfcompassion #joyfulmovement #intuitiveeating #mindfuleating #riotsnotdiets #losehatenotweight #weightstigma #fightfatphobia #fatactivism #socialjustice #antidietrevolution

Hi my name is Kristy. I teach yoga/Movement & I throughly enjoy drinking beer & eating pizza too! : : I can remember when I started teaching yoga nearly 10 years ago & running into students at the bar. They'd see me drinking a beer & their reaction was priceless! They would usually continue by asking me if I was "vegan" or "vegetarian?" You should have seen the looks on their faces when I replied, "neither." : : Don't get me wrong at that time I was still struggling with restrictive/distorted eating & over exercise. I probably worked out for 3 hours the day after drinking beer. : : It's amazing how much we make assumptions based on the "images" the media and/or our culture portray. Like the fitness/yoga instructor/teacher that never drinks and eats "clean" 24/7. : : It's really plain & simple for me these days; I like to eat what I want & when I want it (guilt free). I like to move when I want & do the moves my body chooses and needs at any given time. : : Let me ask you. Do you like drinking beer & eating pizza guilt free? Let me know! 👇🏼

I am not capable of helping people lose weight. No one is. And if they say they are, be mindful. Because they will likely tell you what you shouldn’t eat. They will add to your list of forbidden foods. A forbidden food leads to serious mental and physical health consequences. It increases your food anxiety, feelings of guilt, and a strong desire for that food. So strong, that when you eat it you feel out of control. What if you could turn that forbidden food into a satisfying food? One that leaves you feeling content, happy, and confident in your food selection. Let me show you how!

Blueberries are like people (humor me for a moment)- there are big ones, small ones, skinny ones, fat ones, sweet ones, sour ones, blue ones, pinkish ones, squishy ones and firm ones. They all have their unique differences and imperfections and yet come together to make something beautiful. 🌈 spent the morning with my @mgh_di ladies picking bloobs and I feel like I did hot yoga in the sun but it was worth it for the delicious things I have in store. What would you do with 2 quarts of bloobs?!

I could have trimmed the begining off this video, but then you wouldn't see me fail. Honestly, I almost did. Fail at something I have done many times before. Fail because I am misaligned. Fail because I was over-confident. Fail because sometimes failure happens. I readjusted, but I did overcompensate a little too and had to "catch" the lift rather than control it. I'll get better. And I will hold that crow pose for longer, eventually. #yoga #progress #progressnotperfection #yogaathome #invert #upsidedown #headstand #play #joyfulmovement #failure

I help people accept their bodies using education, yoga/movement, & Mindfulness for Stress Reduction! : : I want ppl to get out of their heads and into their bodies especially when it's comes to how they think they should look, or what size they think they need to be! : : My classes are geared toward moving to FEEL GOOD! No weight loss promises, no changing or fixing your body just pure movement for joy, celebration of having an amazing body that gets us through this thing called life. : : Are you ready to start your journey toward bodily acceptance? : : Together we can resist cultural ideals and pressures that try to convince us to be anything other than ourselves!

The thing that has made my movement joyful lately is that it’s been largely spontaneous. I go through phases where scheduling movement and reserving spots in certain classes feels good, but lately it’s felt stressful to commit. So I’ve been spontaneous with the where, when, and how of movement lately and it’s been super satisfying! I share this because I want you to understand that joyful movement isn’t just about finding a type of movement that feels good, it’s about the whole experience! Maybe you really love a certain movement but the instructor sucks or it’s so freaking hot out that it’s not joyful. Maybe you like a class but going in the afternoon feels better than in the morning. Maybe planning movement into your schedule feels good, or maybe deciding in the moment feels better. And day to day what feels joyful can change as well. This is why I like the term “intuitive movement”. If you’re struggling with joyful or intuitive movement, try to take a step back and question if you’re only focused on the type of movement. There’s so much more to it than that!

Sunday afternoon yoga flow. My high plank is improving and that's all I can really notice at the moment. I'm very much feeling Saturday's technical lifting session in my shoulders and back, which means as I got tired toward the end I used my shoulders to pull the bar a bit too much. It's all practice. #yoga #yogaathome #strength #stressrelief #stretching #balance #breathe #space #routine #yogaposes #mobility #joyfulmovement #thisgirlcan

[ Sort of like bikram yoga in this heat #yoga ] Pyjamasyoga men fortsätter värmen så samlar jag mod och slänger kläderna och kör underklädesyoga precis som min nya favvo @jlmergler (känn er varnade ni som vill slippa min halvnakna lekamen!). Det gör mig så gott att utmana mina egna och samhällets tankar om vad jag behöver skyla, vad som är okej att visa upp och vilka positioner som är godtagbara på bilder. Tänk på det i veckan - hur ser ditt flöde ut och hur reagerar du på det? ___________________________________ #yogaeverydamnday #yogamom #treepose #yogawithadriene #fwfg #inbetweenie #joyfulmovement #TRUE

Of all the words we could have chosen...love, hope, dream... we both chose COURAGE because that’s what it takes to grow and make new friends. That’s what it takes to share your passion with others and learn how to love others well. ❤️ May you all be filled with COURAGE today!!

This is my “summer body.” It can work hard to get me to some dope places. Fuck tryna get it to look a certain way. Sister girl’s time is too precious for workouts to be prep or compensation for eating. I go, I do things I like, and some physical therapy I don’t like and I leave. And then I kick ass getting myself to an awesome lake to zen the the weekend away.

Yesterday @allie_recovers asked for the things that make us happiest. It really got me thinking about my personal values and the role the things that make me happiest had in my recovery. Above all coping mechanisms, my favorite was to be around people that I love. People that aren’t exhausting and people that make you leave feeling happier than you were when you came to them. I’m lucky to have a number of these people in my life. Full recovery isn’t possible without leaning on others & surrounding yourselves with uplifting people. Experiencing the joys of recovery with these humans this weekend made it all that much sweeter.

Playing with the orientation of #armbalances This really challenged us to focus on stabilizing our core instead of relying on shoulder strength (of which I don’t have much of at the moment) to hold us upright. Much harder than it looks! #joyfulmovement #regresstoprogress #mindfulmovement

Picking out stuff for the garage gym has been really fun for me. I love online shopping (a little too much sometimes) and I love decorating, so getting to design a 361 sq. ft. studio space to (mostly) my specifications is my kind of project. ••• After many hours of late-night research, I have all the initial gym equipment picked out - the "grit" of the gym. I'm not looking forward to the many hours of building shit, but the end results will be worth the time and sweat. I also can't get every single thing I want for budget reasons, so I've relegated some things to a list of "future" purchases for when the studio starts to bring in some money. ••• I've been contemplating the "glitter" of the gym, too - paint colors, wall decorations, and little touches here and there to make it special. It's not going to look like your average garage gym, that's for sure. Any woman who walks into the space is going to know that my rainbow unicorn heart created it from a place of joy and gratitude. ••• I know that I am privileged to own a home with a detached garage that I can renovate, to have good credit to afford to do the project, and to live in a safe neighborhood where I can park on the street with minimal concern. But I'm glad to have the opportunity to use that privilege to build a safe space in which others can begin the work of healing their relationship with exercise, food, and their bodies.🌈🦄

It is not your job to make someone else comfortable. It’s not your job to try and change your body for society’s expectations. You are worthy for so many reasons that have nothing to do with your body size. My hope for you is that you wake up, don’t give a second thought to your body, and show up for yourself. 💜

SIDES - @natandayogamat asked me what my home practice looks like... this is the kids bedroom, hiding from everyone and everything side body and fascia slings juicy 30 minute play. I’ve been noticing how working in this way seems to make me stronger in inversions that the stiffening exercises I used to do. Still playing and exploring, but I tell you, this feels so good to my body right now. I never finish my practice or a class with the kind of overstretched, can barely walk feeling I used to. . . . What am I thinking about? (Because in #franklinmethod the imagery is as important as the movement). Some muscle sliding, some fascia sliding. On the back bend bit, I’m feeling the distance between pubic bone and collarbone getting further apart. I’ve adapted some @franklinmethod movements and played with speed. And then I will as thinking about a little choreography that ended up being too complex for a cover class, but was fun for me. I do sun salutations sometimes too... sometimes. . . . #embodiedflow #embodiedyoga #juicyyoga #sidebodymovement #playfulyoga #movementmedicine #awarenesspractice #embodiment #joyfulmovement

Fit" & miserable vs. "Fit" & happy! : : My definition of "fit" has changed quite significantly over the years. : : See, in the picture on the left my idea of "fit" was to over exercise to get down to the smallest size I could along with years of extreme dieting, restrictive/binge eating, and abuse of laxatives in order to get "rid" of calories. Never did I consider that health and well-being was more than exercise and diet. : : Fast forward to now, I feel "fitter" than ever, even if by cultural standards I don't "appear" of "fit" as before. That is because to me being "fit" is not about looking a certain way or having a certain body size. Being "fit" is about self-worth, confidence, joyful movement, intuitive/minfuleating, socializing guilt free and embracing your natural body shape and size! : : Need some guidance when it comes to how you view yourself as being "fit?" I write about how we can fully embrace our bodies in my FREE 17 Body Image ebook (link in profile 👆🏼) focusing on ways we can work on bodily acceptance! Check it out!

I have knee pain. 🌼 It started when I was 17 with an injury from gymnastics. 🌼 There have been seasons of my life where it's hurt more than others and it hurts the most when I'm LESS active. 🌼 This past winter I couldn't clip into my skis or walk down stairs without limping because it hurt so bad. 🌼 I refuse to tell myself it's because I'm getting older. I know that it doesn't hurt more because of my age. It hurts more because I haven't been taking care of it. 🌼 I've been able to be a collegiate cheerleader, professional acrobat, spin instructor, tri-athlete and distance runner WITH knee pain because I listen to it. 🌼 When it screams I respond with care. Stability, mobility & strength exercises + rest. 🌼 For me my pain is not telling me to stop but serves as a cue to take better care of my knee (and myself). 🌼 This picture wouldn't have been possible a few months ago due to my knee pain. 🌼 But because I listened and responded with MORE (gentle) movement - I get to keep living my adventure. 🌼 Upside-down is my happy place so I am determined to do whatever it takes to preserve it as long as possible in my life! 🌼 How about you? What is your pain telling you? 🌼 If your living with pain and are having a hard time figuring out how to best care for it so you can bring more adventure to your life, you might be a good fit for my From Head to Heart one month 1:1 coaching program.

Straight outta the best summer ever thus far. Wish I could say that we coached the swim team to greatness buuut the championship meet was slightly tough. We’re second to last in our division this year. What’s going to change next year? Almost nothing. Because winning is nice, but it’s not the number one goal. It’s about having fun. A lot of eating disorder recovery, or just the reparation of a healthy mindset in general, requires us not to first change our actions, but to first change our goals and aspirations. Until we realize that it’s more important to be happy than thin, that it’s more fulfilling to eat food than it is to deprive ourselves of it, happiness isn’t found in disordered behaviors, we won’t be able to permanently change our actions. When your goal is to be happy, to be fulfilled, to accept yourself, the actions of recovery becomes a heck of a lot easier. And the same goes for swimming. Tomorrow, when you wake up and whatever thing you need to do for recovery seems like a terrible, pointless burden, remind yourself of the end goal. That it’s not about making yourself small and miserable anymore. Each pro recovery choice you make gives you life. Believe me, I’ve witnessed it first hand.

One of the best parts of my summer thus far has been waking up and seeing my swimmers every morning at practice. I took a leap of faith this summer when I decided to coach swim team after not competing since 8th grade. And it was the best choice I’ve ever made. Since I started in May, I’ve made huge strides in my recovery. My little ones and my middle schoolers have taught me a lot of life lessons that extend far past recovery. And these are just a few. Weeds are technically still a flower Dabbing is “dead” Even when you’re 99.99% sure the answer is going to be no, ask the question anyway because of the .01% chance the answer could be yes It’s ideal to have fun and to win, but if you have to choose one, choose fun every time Not everyone listens, but almost everyone is trying to listen Humans show love and appreciation in many different ways. Be present. Notice it. Middle schoolers and 8 year olds will love you no matter what you ate, how much you exercised, etc. And you should love yourself that way too. The small victories mean so much more than the big ones

Not only my first beach trip, but also the first vacation where I can recall sitting on the beach without worrying what’s for dinner, not needing to look at my watch to decide if it’s acceptable to eat, getting enough sleep because I’m not getting up to exercise...etc I don’t know why, but I always think back to this moment in philosophy class. I realized I didn’t have to have exercise related anxiety anymore, that it was part of my ed, that it wasn’t supposed to be there. The classic CBT didn’t make my anxiety go away, but I felt a weight I’d been carrying lifted off of my shoulders. I had an ed for so long that I often forget what life was like without the burden of mental illness on my shoulders. At first, living life like a normal person was equally as terrifying as it was wonderful. The mechanisms that once brought me so much comfort were prohibited. The anxiety consumed in food no longer had food to latch on to, and so it moved on to other things. For the most part, I’ve adapted pretty well to this “normal person” lifestyle. But I really just wasn’t sure about vacation. I feel a little bit, maybe a lot a bit, like a kid again this week. Because in some ways, I’m experiencing a vacation for the first time again. I’m not just “relaxing” (read: sitting on the porch reading a book, squirming because I wish I was moving around), I’m actually relaxing. And I’m eating. And I’m living. It reminds me again of the day in philosophy class, when I realized what a weight I had carried on my shoulders for so long. Even if you can’t possibly imagine a life beyond mental illness, there is. You never really know you’ve been drowning until you come up for air.
